I can’t stop using my Shimmer Paints. I looove them all!
On this card, I dipped a dauber into Frost White Shimmer Paint and applied it to the Groom Specialty paper by rubbing in circles (instead of dabbing). It dried quite quickly.
Then I stamped an image from Embrace Life – $34.95, set of 5, #114958 – with Basic Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock. I added a greeting from Fundamental Phrases in Basic Black and coloured the flower with the Bermuda Bay and Basic Black markers. Three black brads from the Vintage Brads assortment complete the stamped piece.
I added three lengths of ribbon in wide Basic Black grosgrain, Bermuda Bay grosgrain and Basic Black grosgrain to the card by adhering the ribbon on the back of the Bermuda Bay Cardstock. As an added embellishment, I tied a small knot with the Basic Black grosgrain at the side of the card. To finish the card, I added the stamped image using dimensionals for a little bit of height.
I really like the look of this card. It showcases simple stamping but the Shimmer Paint on the Groom paper makes it really special.
